Watch face is great, options good, but sunset/sunrise times are quite wrong.

Hi, The times are calculated based on your location. The calculation is accurate within a couple minutes. If the times seem to be off by a large margin, it would indicate that your location is not correct or is not known yet. To update your location, start an activity with uses gps. Once the location has been set, it is cached within the watch face.

I have the vivoactive 3, since the firmwareupdate the second hand always disappears. Is it possible to fix this problem, i like the second hand

Are you sure you have the latest version of the watch face? Check this by switching between views. The version is shown for a second. Check the field update frequency is set to normal or a slower setting. If you still would experience problems, contact me using "contact developer". There is a variance between the performance of VivoActive, which might be related to the charge level and/or battery life. (So far, the second has been running stable after 90h on the VivoActive I use for testing, which is relatively new)

Thanks for the configurable hands!

Great watch face. Perfect balance of function and form. Would love it if you could add weekly steps count (Sun-Sat or rolling 7 day). Love it!

Lol, we are so different: i personally think that the hour hand is too short now, a would vote for the original length.

March 21, 2018, Grrrippp

I will make it configurable :-)

March 20, 2018 | Version 1.4.10

Wow. You are fast. Awesome. Thank you. Maybe you can make an option for length of hour pointer. Short, shorter, medium and long, longer whatever :-). I think it can even be a little bit shorter. One thing I noticed: battery bar in top field under date doesn't show up. I don't use it, so no big deal ;-)

March 18, 2018 | Version 1.3.33

Great watchface. Maybe you can give us some more options for pointers (rounded, ...) and cut the hour pointer a little bit. I think it is too long. Keep it up!

Hi, Thanks for the review. I shortened the hour hand because it clears the fields better and because it saves memory. However, as the available memory is really tight I 'm a bit cautious about coding rounded pointers, as the generated code needs to be loaded into memory. Offering different kinds of rendering would almost certainly cause stability problems as the available headroom is only 2kb at this moment.

Many thanks for the colors! I wonder if the bottom field could be enhanced a bit: i would increase the progresse bar (to be in line with the 3 and 9 o'clock fields) and also add the icon to it (thanks for the floors icon). Most probably the field needs to be moved upward a bit (again), but it would be more decent and consequnt, imho.

Hi, Thanks again for the review. I will see what I can do. The big problem is memory and increasing field size has an impact of a few precious kb. On the last major update, I was able to save 12kb originally, but the additional code required to compensate for the lack of buffering space and optimisations for the tight screen update timeframe has reduced that gain to maybe 4kb.

In general this is best analog watch face for Garmin Fenix. Nice and smooth. However after yesterday's update something is wrong. Data next to 3, 6 o clock doesn't show up. Same with other configurable pools.

It deserves five stars and donation. Let me add my observations: - Black hands inner/outer color is visualized as dark grey. - Notification icon may overlap the 3 o'clock field if 4 digits are shown (steps, calories). I personally would prefer an option to switch the notification off - strongly subjective: the fonts, used for date field and bottom filed are not in harmony with the fonts used for fields - movebar still works together with activity info (i'd personally prefer to see the movebar without the let's move text, using the same  style that is used for large progressbar; they seem to be different, sorry if i am wrong)

Thanks for your review. -The hands are drawn into a bounding box buffer. That buffer has a reduced pallette to save on memory and I removed black as an option. However, while 4 (3 + transparent) colours will be the upper limit, I will build up the buffer with colours to choice in a next version. -The overlap has been fixed. I considered using the 4'o clock area to draw the icon, but it looked a bit odd, so I left it where it originally was. -The fonts have been reverted to the system fonts because the anti-aliasing didn't work out as it should while still taking too much memory. I would love to use a more modernistic anti-aliased font however. I do prefer the fonts of the VivoActive. -The movebar now works when activity info has been disabled, but uses the same area. Originally, it disappeared while moving, but now it is still displayed as a small progress bar during activity. I intended to make it a bit outspoken, because that helps to get you moving.

Fantastic watchface that shows all the information in a very clear manner. Developer is extremely fast with updates and fixes if needed. I’m very happy and the donation is well deserved. My favourite watchface now. Thanks again!

Really gorgeous watch face. Everything works as it is intended on F5. Thank you.

Veuillez vérifier que les paramètres du montre "Activity Tracking" et "Move Alert"sont activés. Cést aussi necessaire d'activer "Activity Info" et "Movebar" dans les paramètres de KISSAnalog. Utlisez l'option "contact devélopeur" au lieu de critiques s'il vous plaît.

Great WF! - The SunEvent | Time Remaining field does not work on my Fenix5, the top field becomes empty. - I would like to request a Sunrise + Sunset option to the top field, I like to see both (and see how the daylights get longer day by day) - I agree with Darocki, some more hand types, or just some more vivid colors would be great - I completely DISAGREE with Darocki, the hand should remain underneath the fields, if you change it, please send my donation back ;) - I think bottom field should be moved upward a bit, it is much to close to the 6'o clock field Great job!

For the sake of world peace I included an option to draw hands above fields, but it is off by default :-) I placed the bottom field a little higher. I will have a look to add the option sunrise / sunset.

March 2, 2018 | Version 1.0.70

Very good face, I would add few types of hands to choose from and they should be over the data not under. There albo should be more colors to configure the watch to fit on need. Great progress and if those changes are made that would be awesome.

Developer Reply

Thanks. The watch face is currently very close the upper memory boundary. I optimised the code as much as possible, but the more code, the higher the memory usage, so it's a challenge to add more features. I will see if it allows for another kind of hands, but performance and stability is of higher importance. I could make the above / below an option, but it's also a consequence of how the screen is painted.

What an awesome experience! I have been hesitant to spend money on a watchface with so many out there. I've been through a lot, looking for a unique set of features. I didn't find them with this one initially, but I thought I would be close enough. I have it a little thought and decided to contact the designer with my particular desires. He was helpful, curtiois, and prompt. He made my recommended changes withing a day or so. I could not be more happy with this watchface! Thanks so much.

Great watchface and has to be one of the quickest developers to reply to any concerns. Paid version well worth the purchase.

Absolutely agree with Tom Poyntz-Wright. Perfect work!

Heart Rate Bar always empty. Watch Face doesn’t show Activity Info and Move Bar (only watch face version). As for me previous hands rendering was better looking. F5x.

Developer Reply
February 26, 2018, Grrrippp

I'm happier with positive reviews, please contact me for suggestions or issues. I mostly get back to you asap. If the heart rate bar is empty, it means that the zones are not correctly configured: Settings - User Profile - Heart Rate - 1 - Resting HR: check your resting heart rate and maximum is set in your profile 2- Zones: check the maximum heart rate for the general zones 2 - Sport Heart Rate : Check the specific ones for sports - running / cycling / swimming About the rendering: the hands are now anti-ailased versus jagged in the previous version. I wouldn't know why you prefer the previous over the current ones, but I could make it an option.

February 25, 2018 | Version 1.0.6

Very clear and easy to read watchface. Does not slow down watch when going between widgets and watchface. Developer very responsive and open to suggestions. Thank you for making this.

February 25, 2018 | Version 1.0.6

Great work! Thanks for adding data fields!

February 23, 2018 | Version 0.9.34

Well done! I like it very much. But crushing on F5x when “Show Progress Bars for Data Fields” or "Show a single large progress bar vs 2 small ones for Data Fields” or “Show Activity Info” are ticked in settings. So I can not use it... Would be nice to fix this issue.
